  • East sweeps county rivals; NB and BC meet Thursday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Coming off a disappointing effort four nights earlier, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got back in winning form on Monday as they rolled past a struggling Bullitt Central team 25-9, 25-12, 25-12.

    The win came six days after Bullitt East had gone on the road and beat North Bullitt in five games, taking the final game 15-13. In that match, the Lady Chargers played without two key starters. That led into a district loss to Whitefield Academy on Thursday in Jefferson County by a 25-10, 26-24, 25-13 count.

  • Chargers set to extract revenge from Spencer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As Kahn said in the Star Trek movies – ‘revenge is a dish best served cold.’

    That will be the mindset this week for the Bullitt East Chargers as the red and gold take on neighboring rival Spencer County. The Bears have started the season 2-1.

    But it is not so much this season that is on the minds of the Mount Washington crowd. A year ago, the Chargers traveled to Taylorsville for the first time ever for a football game and came away with a 27-0 loss that left head coach Darrell Vincent upset.

     HEBRON ESTATES – Scoring twice in the first 15 minutes of the contest, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers rode that quick start to a 4-0 victory on Monday over North Bullitt in a battle of two of the top teams in the Sixth Region.

    This was the first contest between the two programs since Bullitt East beat the Lady Eagles by the same 4-0 score in last season’s regional semi-finals.

    After dropping the first two games of the season, the win on Monday was the fifth in a row for the Lady Chargers. North Bullitt dropped to 3-2-2.

  • Local hoops will be missing a key game this winter

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past 33 years, since the formation of Bullitt East in 1980, I never dreamed that I would be typing what is to follow.

    On Monday, North Bullitt athletic director Ryan Bringhurst confirmed what had been feared for the past few months, that this winter there will be no boys’ basketball game between North Bullitt and Bullitt East. At the same time, Bringhurst said that no date has been found for a girls’ game but that there is still a chance that contest could be scheduled in the next several weeks.

  • NB gets in win column with late stand

     JEFFERSONTOWN – If North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton had any question about the heart and determination of his football squad, those doubts were erased on a hot and humid Friday night.

         Coming off a pair of losses, North Bullitt would get an important 22-20 victory over the Jeffersontown Chargers.

         But the victory wasn’t sealed until the final buzzer as a 26-yard field goal was just wide left.

  • BC hangs on late to beat Trojans on road

     OKOLONA – Surviving a furious rally from Southern, the Bullitt Central Cougars moved to 2-0 this season with a 22-21 victory on Friday.

         Bullitt Central had a 22-7 lead entering the fourth quarter, but gave up two late scores. The final points were scored by the Trojans at the 6:15 mark, but then the defense made a big stand late to seal the win, the seventh in a row over their northern neighbors.
